Temperatures are rising outside, which means a rising electric bill.
The Citizens Utility Board co-hosted an energy efficiency event with State Representative Darlene Senger at City Hall.
“The whole point here is to be a smart consumer and to save money,” said Senger. “That’s what CUB is about. I’m going to go home and look at my bills because I know there’s things on there that I can take off.”
Simple ideas such as unplugging appliances or installing compact fluorescent light bulbs can save up to 10 percent on your bill. Avoiding hot showers, hair dryers, and ovens to keep your home cooler can also save consumers money. Be sure to set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible to keep from wasting energy.
The Naperville Are Homeowner’s Confederation (NAHC) plans to host additional seminars to share the information with other residents.
